News flash: Megan Fox is not a real motorcycle mechanic. And she’s not a unicorn. She’s a woodland nymph fairy. (Associated Press photo)
“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” star Megan Fox was on CBS’ “Early Show” this morning, and co-anchor Harry Smith managed to get some hard-hitting news out of the actress with his razor-sharp interviewing skills.
1. Fox is not, in fact, a motorcycle mechanic. She was PRETENDING to be a motorcycle mechanic in that movie. She can’t even ride a motorcycle.
2. Shia LeBeouf recently likened co-starring with Fox as “kissing a unicorn or something.” But Fox doesn’t remind Smith of a unicorn. She’s more of a “woodland fairy nymph.” Yeah.
3. The “Transformers” sequel is actually a movie for geniuses.
Wow, rarely has a man been rendered so utterly mindless by a short skirt and a hint of cleavage. At least, not in a supposedly professional situation that is being filmed for national television.
One genuinely interesting aspect of the interview: Smith says he saw the movie in IMAX “with actual human beings” (!) and asked Fox if he was supposed to “literally understand every scene.”
“I mean, I’m in the movie and I read the script and I watched the movie and I still didn’t know what was happening,” she answered. “I think if you haven’t read the script and you go and you see it and you understand it, you may be a genius. This is a movie for geniuses.”
After seeing it myself, I believe this should be the new tagline for the movie.
Despite the phenomenal box office success, my assessment of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” stands: It has some great fight scenes but the lack of plot transforms the film into a 2 1/2-hour explosion fest that eventually numbs the senses.
And if these two are any indication, it numbs the brain as well.
